To Spin or not to Spin?

Paper plate spin art without the spinner

 

 

Choose any paint you have on hand and have the child put dabs or lines of paint colors on the paper plate.

Next, invite the child to flip the paper plate over on a large sheet of paper. Then press down firmly with one hand and “spin” or turn the paper plate while pressing down…

When you are done giving the paper plate a few turns then lift the paper plate off the paper…

And there you have your very own spin art! Move the paper plate over a bit and then try it again as many times as you like…

You actually end up with two pieces of artwork at the same time – the paper plate is just as beautiful as the paper! You could let the child keep one and display the other…
